There's little doubt that Britney Spears' career is back in a big way - but at what cost? Is she being forced to do too much by her handlers?

Despite an upbeat ending to a year that began with her getting strapped to a gurney (twice), and has seen her overcome a nearly 15-month aversion to pants and underwear, some believe the singer is being pushed too hard, too fast.

"It is too much for her," an insider tells celebrity news magazine OK! "They pack her schedule too tight and now they're trying to find free time."

Despite the success of her new album, Circus, the "signs of cracks in Brit's armor are already beginning to show," says a source close to Spears.

What do you think? Is she being asked to do too much, only to be set up for another epic fall? Let us know your thoughts via the survey below ...

The great Brody Jenner has dated a number of hot girls - Lauren Conrad, Nicole Richie, Cora Skinner - but briefly. He usually decides to move on fairly quickly.

Well, perhaps that's about to change. According to Scandalist, Brody's made his love for current girlfriend (Playmate of the Year) Jayde Nicole, permanent.

At least in the sense that their matching tattoos won't come off!

Playmate girlfriend by his side, Brody Jenner gives a shout-out to a supporter.

A source reveals: “Jayde and Brody have each other’s initials tattooed on the inside of their lower lips. And they have plans for another set of tattoos.”

Umm... does this mean Jayde has the letters "BJ" tattooed inside her mouth? Remind us to disown our daughters if they date guys with those initials.

Anyway, here are some more photos of Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole we came across. Why? It's Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole! Talk about a couple both the ladies and the guys can appreciate! Click to enlarge our gene pool at its best ...

Hilary Duff looks positively hot in the new issue Maxim. We feel kinda weird saying it, because we've been conditioned by Hilary Duff not to talk that way about Hilary Duff.

But there's no denying it. Check her out and click to enlarge ...

  • Not Duff Enough!
  • Hilary Duff Maxim Cover
  • Hilary Duff Maxim Picture

NOT ENOUGH DUFF! Hilary takes her image to a new (awesome!) level.

Maxim's Sexiest Stars of '09 apparently include singers Katy Perry and Rihanna, High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens, Heroes' Hayden Panettiere and Gossip Girls' Blake Lively. But it's the Duffster who truly caught our eye with that cover photo.

Why? Because she's clung to her good girl, teen queen image for years. We thought she'd never kick it to the curb, but bless her heart, it looks like she has!

If those Hilary Duff pictures weren't sexy enough, follow the jump for her music video for "Reach Out." This video may make you wanna reach out and, um, forget it.

As 2008 winds down, it's time to reflect upon those - from household names to relative unknowns, from A- to D-list - who made this year so memorable.

The Hollywood Gossip is unveiling 10 finalists for its 2nd Annual Celebrity of the Year award. They've given us their best, their worst, even their nude pictures in some cases. Now it is time for us to give something back with this moving tribute.

We previously profiled the seductive, attention-grabbing, pretend lesbians of 2008. Today, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #6 … Ashley Dupre!

In our years in the celeb gossip biz, we've covered many a ho, but none like Ashley Dupre, a.k.a. Ashley DiPietro, a.k.a. Ashley Youmans, a.k.a. Kristen.

The reason? She was an actual ho, as in one who has sex for money. A lot of money. New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, a.k.a. Client No. 9, can attest!

When Spitzer resigned in disgrace after being caught by the FBI arranging to pay to see Ashley Dupre nude at $4,300 per hour, she became a sensation.

Downloads of her crappy music soared. Celeb news mags and TV shows clamored for interviews. Joe Francis offered her seven figures to get naked for Girls Gone Wild - before realizing she already did that while underage years ago, natch.

The country's most famous "escort" (she hates the term prostitute) says she's a real straight arrow now. Her next step is uncertain, but there's been talk of Ashley Dupre getting her own reality show. What a great country this is.

We've tried to encompass the fairly sexy, extremely trashy magic that is Ashley Alexandra Dupre with the photo tribute below. Click to enlarge!

More than three years after he famously called Matt Lauer "glib," movie star Tom Cruise admitted on Monday's Today show that he "came across arrogant."

"After looking at it, it's not what I had intended," Cruise told Lauer. "That's one of those things that you go, 'I could have handled that better.' I didn't communicate it the way that I wanted to communicate it. That's not who I am."

Cruise said he isn't done publicly talking about Scientology or expressing his views on controversial social issues. But only at the appropriate times.

"I just think there's a time and a place for it," he said. "But when people are tuning in to hear about my movie, that's what I'm here to talk about it."

Rocky II, it wasn't. The star was downright humble this time around. Click to enlarge more Tom Cruise pics on and behind the scenes of the Today set ...

Lauren Conrad. Audrina Patridge. Heidi Montag. Whitney Port. Who's the most beautiful girl on The Hills? Brody Jenner wouldn't go there.

"I think they’re all beautiful," Lauren Conrad's ex told Us Weekly after being asked that question at the Z100 Jingle Ball 2008 concert in New York.


Brody also has nothing but well wishes for his buddy (and another Lauren Conrad ex) Doug Reinhardt, who's now dating actress Amanda Bynes.

"Good for them," he said. "I hope they’re very happy."

Meanwhile, Brody Jenner is gearing up for his new show, Bromance, which debuts later this month along with Whitney Port's Hills spin-off, The City.

"Bromance is about bros. It's not really about dating," the reality TV staple said. "People will get to see what a bromance is when they watch the show."

"It's a special bond between two males. There's Punk'd elements, Superbad, fireside margaritas with these guys, some awkward guy moments."

How wonderful. But back to Brody's original statement: Which of The Hills girls is the fairest of them all? Examine some pics and tell us ...

More than a few of us shed tears when DeAnna Pappas broke his heart last summer.

Well, get ready to bawl your eyes out again when The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick gets engaged during the final rose ceremony, according to host Chris Harrison.

"I'm extremely happy for Jason and the woman he chose. It's a fantastic season that has an incredible finish," Harrison said Thursday in an interview. "There will be many tears shed as fans take this journey with us this season."

Jason Mesnick - who was dumped by DeAnna Pappas on The Bachelorette finale in July - has already confirmed that he is engaged. We will get to see it all play out on the ABC reality show's upcoming season (premiering January 5).

Jason Mesnick on The Bachelor

Jason Mesnick, 32, was hesitant to start dating again after Pappas rejected him.

"I haven't dated at all since DeAnna," a heartbroken Jason said in August.

"I wanted to give myself the time to heal so that when I got out there again I was ready to give whoever I am with the respect and total attention she deserves... to give these girls everything I can to find the one that is right for me."

We're glad it worked out for Jason Mesnick, and can't wait to watch.
